If you can’t determine what ails your vehicle, bring it to KHN Services. Semi-automatic transmission denotes a multi-speed motor vehicle transmission where part of its operation is automated (typically the clutch actuation), but the driver’s input is still required to start (i.e., launch the vehicle) from a standstill and to manually change gears. Most semi-automatic transmissions used in cars and motorcycles are based on conventional manual transmissions or a sequential manual transmission, but use an automatic clutch system. However, some semi-automatic transmissions have also been based on standard hydraulic automatic transmissions, with a fluid coupling or torque converter.
A ‘broken’ gearbox can may be caused by many different factors, resulting in many different symptoms, including but not limited to atypical noises such as whining or grinding, the presence of a burning smell (caused by degraded transmission fluid), transmission fluid leaks, gear slips (caused by worn gears being unable to engage effectively), and the illumination of the gearbox warning light.
It is essential to deal with gearbox problems upon discovering the first indicator of an issue, as gearbox rebuilds and replacements can be costly in comparison to minimal repair work.

In British terminology, the term transmission refers to the entire drivetrain, including the clutch, gearbox, and final drive shafts. The gearbox itself is a device altering torque and speed in driving devices.
This is often confused with American terminology, in which the gearbox itself is often referred to as the transmission.
Slipping gears are often attributed to general wear and tear. When gears become worn, they tend to become rounded, meaning they cannot engage or link together effectively. This commonly leads to gear slippage and difficult transitions.

Gearbox repair costs vary hugely depending on the work needed to restore the part to roadworthy condition. In some cases, a simple repair will suffice, whilst gearboxes subject to more serious wear or issues may require more extensive work, a rebuild, or even a replacement. In addition to this, gearbox type may further influence repair prices. For the above reasons, giving an average price for a gearbox repair is not entirely simple.
